One night, I decided to surprise Justin with a Puerto Rican feast. The stuff in the middle: Mofungo. Mashed plantains with ham, garlic, olive oil, and seasonings. There are different versions of this. Most call for mashed fried plantains. However, that pushes the calories per serving to about 900 (and who eats just one serving?) so I boiled the plantains. I can’t say it tasted much different. I made it only one other time, with onions. I chose to omit them this time because they were all we could taste the first time. The stuff around the outside: Pollo Guisado. Chicken with a tomato base, carrots, potatoes, green olives, cilantro, and myriad spices. The “sauce” aspect dried up more than I wanted during cooking, but man, it popped with flavor. Not pictured: Arroz con Gandules. Rice with pidgeon peas and ham. In other words…CARB OVERLOAD!!! I don’t even want to think about the salt.
